Bowling spearhead Umesh Yadav is an RBI officer now

Bowling spearhead Umesh Yadav is an RBI officer now”

Umesh Yadav proudly celebrated the honour of being appointed Assistant Manger at Reserve Bank of India (RBI) but probably didn't expect that his celebrations will be cut short with a robbery on the same day. The Kolkata Knight Riders bowler has reportedly completed all the joining formalities as well. Police sources said the mobile phone stolen belonged to Yadav's mother. He had met RBI officials before leaving for England in May.

Although this may come as a surprise to some, a source has revealed that talks had been going on for a while now.

The source also added that Yadav couldn't have asked for a better organisation than the RBI and though he may no longer need the security of a government job, the appointment still means a lot to him.

Before taking up professional cricket, the 29-year-old had other career plans.

Umesh Yadav's manager is expected to lodge a complain at Ambazari police station on Tuesday. In order to fulfil his father's wish, Umesh prepared for the exam but missed the cut-off mark by a very small margin.

But a few years down the line, after establishing himself in global cricket, Yadav has bagged a job much better than what he had initially wished for, and all of that without having to clear an exam. He was taken by the then Vidarbha skipper Preetam Gandhe to the Air India but despite good performing well for the national carrier's cricket team, the speedster couldn't get a job. However, the airline didn't offer Umesh a permanent job. He had claimed 17 wickets against Australia - highest by an Indian pacer in four-match Test series.
